Knitting: Puffy Sleeved Shrug

As we head further into Autumn, and we need to pull out some warmer clothing, it is increasingly apparent that my girls need some knitty love from their Mum, and I think this needs to be in the form of a shrug.

Shrugs are such versatile little garments, and can be worn over a number of different tops and dresses: long-sleeved; short-sleeved; sleeveless; strapless etc. Shrugs can be lightweight and pretty, or thicker for warmth….and still pretty 😉 This pattern, Puffy Sleeved Shrug (which happens to be my own design), is somewhere in between.

I think this will be a fantastic addition to the girls’ wardrobes, as it adds a wonderfully girly touch to an outfit with its puffed sleeves. I think it will look great over a top and teamed with a skirt, leggings, and some funky boots.

The hardest thing will be deciding on yarn and colour I think! Hopefully all these examples below will provide some inspiration. These were all created by a bunch of wonderfully talented ladies during the testing phase of my pattern, and are all absolutely beautiful xx

What do you think will make a great addition to a little girls’ wardrobe this Autumn/Winter?
